    Well, if you want more well phased anime I can suggest some. This ones are not so much "what the hell just happened", but still very well worth watching: Haibane Renmei, Shingetsutan Tsukihime, Kurozuka and Gunslinger Girl both seasons. Also maybe Black Lagoon, Fate/Stay Night, Nana, Angel Beats and Azumanga, for a bit more pop titles, but still good ones.

    I still wish he'd stayed all hero of justice even if just a few more episodes. I liked how he went nuts in the Linebarrel at first.

    Not sure what you mean there, but I was talking about the one based on Tsukihime manga or to be even more specific, this anime.

    Yeeeah it;s based on avisual novel as is the manga if one exists(not doubting you just saying i'd never heard of it). Thing is most of the VN fans even deny this series existence. It's one of those running jokes at this point where they say it doesn't exist because it so heavily butchered there VN .

    I'm still kinda lost, but than again I've never been interested in anything apart from anime, neither manga nor games. All I can say is that Tsukihime is an excellent example of how one can fit more content in 12 episodes that you'll find in whole naruto series together.

    Well then i'm guessing the shorthand VN kinda misses it's mark. Visual Novel is basicallya playable novel one VERY famous example in the states is bible black it was based off of a VN however not all VN's are porn Clannad, the higurashi series and many many other anime series are based off of them. Among a few others is School days and one of the more recent series(damn can't remember it;s name) that had multiple story arcs each with a different female is also based on one as is Fate Stay Night. Thus VN can eventually sprout in multiple media formats as seen with series like the one you mentioned and fate stay night to say the least. Even series like Da Capo and Shuffle were VN first.

    So yeah that's what i was saying look at this series as what say america did to dragonball in a fans eyes.

    Read previous pages on Code Geass :P

It has been mentioned already that Orange was smiling after Zerozaku leapt off him, so I think this is also a good indicator.
    They left a lot of stuff in there that would make you think and hope he's alive, which is great. She's not alone for sure -> World of C.

    @ sagan-man. Well it's not like what the director said is untrue. I liek that to be honest, why you chose to ignore him is beyond me :P

    If you really want to enjoy anime, try watching Higurashi no Naku Koro ni, Bakemonogotari, Ego Proxy, even Blame, if you can handle it. Or do Umineko no Naku Koro ni, Jigoku Shoujo, Noir, Phantom and Chaos;Head if you want something more... mild.

    Eitgher way I think it's the best you can get out of anime, since you you want dumb fighting, you have whole hollywood making that. Sure, comedy is nice once in a while, but it's so hard to find a good one that will not go the retarder route.
    All great anime, watched them all and loved em all... dunno why people don't like these, like it's been said, it's this kind animes that make you think about stuff!

    I've found Genshiken to be rather close resemblance of what most otaku are like.

    Speaking of Tsukihime, I watched it some time ago across a month or so, and just yesterday I thought "wait, did I finish Tsukihime yet?". Guess it was that bad (that I don't even remember how it ended).

  15. #2055
    Thanks for a nice list! Will surely check out a few of them.

    Not half as bad as only knowing you finished a series because you remember it's end and what happens in between AFTER checking out the end. I mean really now THAT is a very unmemorable series.

    Speaking of VNs, anyone know how I could get my hands on some that would be mac compatible? (I have a friend who always tells me to play stuff instead of watching it, but the OS makes it difficult to say the least...)

    Can't suggest any novels, but I can advise you to take a look at this. Might help ^_^

    Oh cmon, I quite enjoyed Tsukihime, the anime AND the entire manga at that. In my honest opinion it's actually very good.

    Well, that's actually a pretty good solution right there from the looks of it.
    Thanks!
